The new CD from multi-Grammy nominated vocalist Nnenna Freelon, Homefree, hits stores today (CD & digital) via Concord Jazz Records.

The new album is Freelon's 7th Concord release and is a soulful, swinging album that Freelon calls her “home brew." The collection is comprised largely of contemporary interpretations of classic American Songbook tunes as well as a new original (the witty, playful and poignant “Cell Phone Blues" composed by the singer) and spirited arrangements of two anthems (the gospel treasure “Lift Every Voice and Sing" and the national hymn “America the Beautiful") that close the album.

Track listing:
1. The Lamp Is Low 4:55)
2. I Feel Pretty (5:36)
3. The Very Thought of You (6:01)
4. Theme from Valley of the Dolls (4:59)
5. Smile (4:13)
6. You and the Night and the Music (4:37)
7. Cell Phone Blues (4:38)
8. Get Out of Town (4:19)
9. Skylark (5:15)
10. Lift Every Voice and Sing (4:37)
11. America the Beautiful (2:52)

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
